Qantas Dispute – Back to the drawing board

Qantas Dispute – Back to the drawing board
a close up of a logo

After 21 days Qantas has failed to successfully negotiate a deal with unions representing the Pilots, or the Transport Workers Union. Only the Aircraft Engineers are still in negotiation – and that might change in the next few hours.

Well what does this say about Qantas? Well one of two things:

  1. They are shit negotiators
  2. They wanted Fair Work Australia to issue a binding resolution to the dispute in the first place

To paraphrase Oscar Wilde – ‘to lose one negotiation may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness’. 

Could this be the beginning of big business using the labour initiated Fair Work Australia legislation to impose resolutions on unions saving them the effort of successful negotiation?

Over to you Fair Work Australia
